Eugene Jaudas and his Society Orchestra recorded a lot of snappy numbers like this one from November 1917 on an Edison Blue Amberol cylinder #3404, dubbed from the Diamond Disc recording 50553-R. Topics: ragtime, early jazz, blue amberol, cylinder record
An earlier Wax Amberol recording released later also on Blue Amberol. Unless the post-1914 recordings this one was recorded directly on cylinder (no dubbing from Diamond Disc). Therefore the earlier Blue Amberols sound very crisp and clear compared to their later counterparts. Edison Blue Amberol #2410 (Wax Amberol 4M-872 Master), recorded in 1911, performed by Albert Campbell and Irving Gillette (Henry Burr).

The Cylinder Archive [ www.cylinder.de ] release for January 2014: This Edison Blue Amberol is one of the later German series and was recorded August of 1917.
